With a presidency as highly watched as the Trump’s, you better believe there are people looking for a piece of the action.
Donald Trump was already very famous before becoming the Commander in Chief. Now there are even more folks wanting to associate themselves with the man.
One of these people from his past went a bit too far, though, when she called herself the “first lady.” As it turns out, the real First Lady had something to say.
From Daily Wire:
Promoting her new book, Raising Trump, President Donald Trump’s first wife, Ivana, referred to herself as the real “first lady” while appearing on Good Morning America.
In true Trump fashion, First Lady Melania Trump did not take kindly to the remark and fired back with a statement from her office…
In a statement provided by the first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, team Melania blasted “attention-seeking” Ivana for her comment, which they said has “no substance.”
“This is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise,” blasted Grisham.
“Mrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President. She loves living in Washington, D.C. and is honored by her role as First Lady of the United States,” the communications director continued. “She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books.”
Boom! Now if those aren’t fighting words, I don’t know what are. It’s clear Melania is not having any of Ivanka’s games.
We all can see what Ivanka’s doing. She’s trying to capitalize on her former husband’s current success to steal a little bit of the limelight. Why else release a book called “Raising Trump” after he becomes the most visible man in America?
What kind of title is that in the first place? Does she think she’s Donald Trump’s mother? Weird, if you ask me. Especially now, considering he’s with another woman who is raising their son together.
There’s always tension between an ex and a current spouse. Melania’s response to put Ivanka in her place in no surprise. While Ivanka is trying to use her connection to the president to further her celebrity, Melania is working to improve the lives of Americans.
Which one would you rather be First Lady?
